“DESIGN YOUR OWN DIGITAL JOURNEY AND INSTINCTS AS A LEADER”

Coursework, discussions and site visits
In one of the world’s most innovative financial centres

In today’s increasingly competitive environment, the ability to harness disruption and innovation requires a special combination of skills and instincts as well as an interpretation of the trends shaping our world. The winners will be those who can leverage the changing rules for their own decisions.

Since 2016, The Asian Banker’s unique five-day Digital Finance Leadership Programme has been training a steady flow of decision makers in financial institutions from across many developing economies in Asia, Africa and the Middle East to hone their leadership skills in a digital world.

The programme combines teaching, mentoring, site visits and personal interactions with industry leaders, disruptors and outstanding personalities in search of answers to some of the most difficult questions which leading executives face today.

This program will also help you in developing the skills to make the right decisions and to steer your organisation through the uncertainties in the digital economy.

The city of London, called by some as “the financial centre of the world”, is led by very progressive regulators and has a diversity of players shaping the future of the financial services industry today.

The City hosts some of the most successful financial technology (fintech) innovators worldwide: Payments start-ups, peer-to-peer (P2P) lending marketplaces, online investment service, forex start-ups, as well as digital challenger banks and neo-banks, to name a few.

High-street banks are spearheading their own digital journeys by setting up open innovation accelerators, new branch concepts and customer experience labs.

With significant support from the UK government through R&D tax breaks and programs designed to foster growth, London provides a suitable platform for the greatest experiments in pushing the financial services industry towards its technology driven future.
